GoFundMe Page Set Up for Former Poco Lax Player After Accident

by Owen Munro

As last month's powerful windstorm began sweeping across the Lower Mainland, Alex Higden was driving a truck back to the Pitt Meadows roofing shop where he works.

It was his last shift before Christmas and the 20-year-old Port Coquitlam man was looking forward to spending some time on a ski holiday at Sasquatch Mountain with his family.

In an instant, everything changed.

As he was driving along Old Dewdney Trunk Road near Hopcott Meats shortly after 4 p.m. Dec. 20, a tree toppled onto his vehicle, smashing the cab of the truck.

A GoFundMe has been created for Alex and his push to walk again, and it can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/make-alex-walk-again
